Restriction On Airspace Use For Republic Day Celebrations From January 19

New Delhi:  The airspace will remain out of bounds for commercial flights arriving and departing out of the IGI airport in New Delhi for more than an hour every day beginning next week in view of the Republic Day celebrations.

The airlines have already been intimated about the airspace closure through a NOTAM (Notice to airmen), issued by the Airports of Authority of India (AAI), which manages Indian airspace, sources said today.

The NOTAM was issued two days ago, they said.

According to NOTAM, no landing or take-off of any commercial flight will be allowed from the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) in New Delhi between 1035 hours to 1215 hours from January 19 to 24, 2016 and then again for the same duration on January 26 as well.

On January 26, President Pranab Mukherjee will unfurl the tricolour and take the salute of marching contingents.
